2014 Annual Electronic Editions

The Merritt Commercial Risks Manual and Strategies for Insurance Coverage Manual have been standard insurance industry reference texts for more than 40 years. These multi-volume encyclopedias explore the breadth of complex insurance in comprehensive detail. And they explain it all in plain English . They have answers for just about any question that may come up; and they're designed to help you put together detailed presentations or white papers quickly and professionally.
The Merritt/CRM is a tactical guide to business insurance—detailing policy forms, coverage and claims issues and market conditions. The Merritt/SFC is a broader, more strategic view of the business insurance marketplace. It explains why certain coverages work they way they do. It describes the excess and surplus markets. And it looks into how particular markets like Lloyd’s of London and the Bermuda reinsurance niche operate.
The electronic editions of these Manuals come together on one CD-ROM that allows you to use the content as you need it.

And you can cut and paste key passages for use in white papers or presentations. Whether you're looking for plain English explanations of the intricacies of aviation coverage or the technical language to get the right CGL quote from a big carrier, these Manuals have what you need.
